Use CSV files to create new posts (3 posts)

    Hi People, I basically need to know if there is a way that i can BATCH create new posts by uploading a csv ( from excel or access). The vision that I have in my head is that in the CSV file one row equals one post, and columns are each post field (INCLUDING custom fields).

    The site I want to create will have a lot of different ' custom posts' ( 100's) of information that I will have to update periodically and having to go through each and everyone of their wordpress post editor pages will be long and time consuming.

    Is there a plugin or a method that allow me to do this?

    Thanks.

    I don't necessarily know where to point you to accomplish this. However, my first thought is to download your wp-posts and related tables from the SQL Database and look at the structure. You may be able to edit the posts (once they are created) through your spreadsheet and then re-writing the table data to reflect the changes. One concern I do see is a problem with serialized data in the tables.
